Title I Programs at Kingsway
The Kingsway Regional School District offers a Targeted Assistance Program model that uses Title I funds to support its students academic success. A Targeted Assistance Program centers academic support and related interventions and services on an identified group of students' who are at risk of not meeting state standards. Criteria used by the Kingsway Regional School District to identify students for services include a combination of the following measures: state standardized test scores, classroom grades, local benchmark assessments (i.e. CSAs), and recommendations from school personnel.
The information below provides an overview of Title I funded programs offered to students at the Kingsway Regional School District. These programs are dedicated to not only closing gaps but also bolstering your child’s academic confidence while achieving success with district curriculum.
- Supplemental in-day Math and English/language arts (ELA) Classes: Students who have been identified as needing additional supports using multiple measures (i.e. recommendations, course grades, and/or standardized test scores) will be assigned a supplemental course of instruction. These courses are designed to help support the key skills and concepts students need to be successful in the core academic courses. These courses offer tailored instruction by the teacher, progress monitoring via an online math program (iXL and/or iReady), a smaller group setting, and the use of technology on a consistent basis to aid in individualizing instruction for the students. The teachers for the program can be contacted at anytime to learn more. Teachers are noted in PowerSchool and on each student's schedule.
- Supplemental after-school Academic Assistance Program (AAP): This program is offered after school at both the middle school and high school to students who have been identified as needing additional supports in math and/or English/language arts based on the results of a variety of measures (i.e. recommendations, course grades, and/or standardized test scores). AAP's goal is to provide supplemental instruction for our academically at-risk students through individualized supplemental math and ELA practice activities in a smaller group setting. The coordinators for the program can be contacted at anytime to learn more. Their information is below:
- English Language Learners (ELL) Summer Program: The Kingsway Regional School District offers a four-week ELL Summer Program each July. Based on teacher recommendation and standardized test scores and/or ACCESS Test scores, identified students are eligible to participate. This ELL summer program is a great way for students to sharpen their language skills and to increase achievement in speaking, reading, and writing in the English language. This program helps to give students the confidence and learning skills necessary to effectively adopt the English language as well as meet the academic learning goals within the curriculum. The students are engaged in both academic and fun-filled activities that will make their transition into the next school year more successful.
